Sly, welcome aboard. where do you hang your hat?

you'll need to give a little more info, what game or intended targets are you wanting to shoot at these ranges?

I don't think you'll be dissapointed with any of the calibers you mentioned. You'll find everyone is partial to their own calibers... They'll all perform well on most game at most the distances you'll be looking at shooting. My vote is for the 300 rum

Are you familiar with reloading?

7stw isn't all that when yo ucan simplify things and ease the wear on your barrel.

300wsm or the 7 wsm will easily do the job on the smaller whitetails you have.

300wsm and the 175 smk/210smk and the 7wsm and 175 smk.
Although the Bergers will be impressive as well.

K.I.S.S. method works...
